The Dutch Grand Prix, Zandvoort, 27th August 1978

Ronnie Peterson shadows team leader Mario Andretti in their dominant 'Black Beauty' Lotus 79s. Andretti won the race for John Player Team Lotus in chassis 79/4 with Peterson just 0.3 seconds adrift at the flag in 79/2; an emphatic victory and the last 1-2 for Team Lotus. Ronnie was a loyal team mate, dutifully supporting number one driver Mario to his World Championship title and helping to secure the Constructors' title with his runner-up spot. The popular Swedish driver won two 1978 Grand Prix to Andretti's six and this race proved to be Andretti's last F1 victory. Tragically it was Peterson's last finish, as disaster struck at the start of the next race, at Monza. Ronnie Peterson 1944 - 1978: 'Superswede' and the best team mate ever.
